"Red Morning Light" as written by Angelo T. Petraglia, Ivan Nathan Followill and Anthony Caleb Followill....
You know you could've been a wonder
Takin' your circus to the sky
You couldn't take it on the tight rope
No you had to take it on the side
You always like it undercover
Tucked in between your dirty sheets
But no one's even done nuttin' to ya
In between the hollers and the screams

And I said nah nah hey hey
Another dirty bird ain't givin' out a taste
In the black of the night till the red morning light

You got your cozy little corner
All night you're jammin' on your feet
Hangin' out just like a street sign
And put a twenty dollar trick
I hear you're blowin' like a feather
And then they rub it in your face
Oh once they've had all their fun hun
You're at the bottom of the cage

And I said nah nah hey hey
Another dirty bird ain't giving out a taste
In the black of the night till the red morning light
And I said nah nah hey hey you're givin' all your cinnamon away
That's not right

Hey hey another dirty bird ain't givin' out a taste
Uh hey keep on givin' away and givin' it away (givin' it away)
Hey hey you're givin' all your cinnamon away
Hey hey you're givin' all your cinnamon away

Ah hey hey
Another dirty bird ain't giving out a taste
In the black of the night till the red morning light
And I said nah nah hey hey you're givin' all your cinnamon away
That's not right

And I said nah nah hey hey
Another dirty bird ain't giving out a taste
In the black of the night till the red morning light
And I said nah nah hey hey you're givin' all your cinnamon away

    General CommentI saw this song on a Ford commercial. Thats funny, usually those big corporations wouldnt allow this kind of song due to its lyrical content, there must be a cool guy in the marketing department that got this song on...nice work!

    General CommentAgreed, definitely a song about what it's like to be a hooker and how they live without love "...in between the hollers and the scream" and once the guys are finished with they are left "at the bottom of the cage" with nothing but the money and a shallow experience of sex without love. KoL obviously disagree with this kind of living with the line "...you're givin' all your cinnamon away, That's not right"

    General CommentAgreed. I jam to this song a lot, but it's kinda gross. :\

    "I hear you're blowin' like a feather
    And then they rub it in your face"

    Gwoss.
